If I had to choose one word to describe my garden right now, I think it would be ‘confused’…. Winter has been weirdly mild: no snow, temperatures rarely below zero, and as we head through February the plants are beginning to believe that spring is on its way …
This of course is very optimistic of them, and if we get caught by late frosts and -perish the thought – snow, then they will regret their unreasonable haste.
So here for you is a selection of what is happening: winter berries on the ivy; early daffodil buds; the first primroses; hellebore and of course the snowdrops that are wildly excited by this unseasonal sunshine.
I like to think that these mood boards are my take on the books of pressed flowers that used to be assembled with love and care, in the days when people had more time and did not long for the immediate gratification that is the lot of this blogger.
Hey ho …. sometimes you just have to say things the way they are …
wishing you a happy week ahead,
thank you for reading me.
